Complicated Process w/Errors
« on: February 17, 2010, 08:41:58 AM »
Alright... Keep up with me now.

I was using phpBB3 and converted to SMF 1.1.11 and everything seemed to go ok. 

Then I upgraded from 1.1.11 to 2.0 RC2.

Here are the issues I am having.

The Admin page that is supposed to stream in news reports from SMF is blank most of the time.
I try to "Install" a theme, but gets kicked back saying my session has expired, even when I just logged in.
Changing a theme to defualt is a pain as I get the same error as above, but if I spam the procedure it switched over.
I have converted all the .html stuff to UTF8

I just want it to work smoothly.

Any suggestions?

Did you convert the database to UTF-8 as well? Please read here on how to convert everything over to UTF-8.

Did you do any modifications on the forum yet? If not, download the large upgrade package for SMF 2.0 RC2 and overwrite all the files in your current SMF directory. Then run upgrade.php again.
